"I've called 'tails' every single time this year, and that's what it's going to be this weekend," DeOssie said Thursday.

"Eli turned to Tuck and said, 'You want to call it?' " DeOssie said. "And Tuck said, 'Nah, I don't feel like it. I don't need to call it. Zak, you want to call it?' I said, 'Yeah, sure.' "
It was his job the rest of the way.
